Nigeria VS Sierra Leone: Obaseki assures players, visitors of security

 


The Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, has assured players, supporters, and other visitors for the Super Eagles’ 2021 AFCON qualifier against the Leone Stars of Sierra Leone of adequate security.

The encounter holds at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium in Benin City, the state capital, on November 13.

It’s the Eagles’ first competitive match following the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic in March, and the first major competitive game to hold at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium since its renovation.

The match holds a day after the inauguration of Governor Obaseki and his Deputy, Philip Shaibu, for a second term in office.

Special Adviser to the Governor on Media and Communication Strategy, Crusoe Osagie, reaffirmed the readiness of the state to host the teams and lovers of football.

Osagie said, “We are proud to play host to the AFCON qualifier between our Super Eagles and Leone Stars of Sierra Leone at the world-class Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium.

“This match is dear to us as it is coming barely 24 hours after the inauguration of Governor Godwin Obaseki on November 12.

“As a sports-loving government, the Governor Obaseki-led administration has made concerted efforts to ensure the safety and security of all players, supporters, and visitors who would be in the state for the football match. The governor has promised that the Super Eagles won’t lack any form of support to come out victorious in Benin City on November 13.

“The very competitive match is also an opportunity for the governor to showcase to Edo people and Nigerians the holistic transformation of the stadium into a world-class facility. Players and supporters alike will be treated to one of the best sporting facilities in the world, which features the Video Assistant Referee technology.”
